Lessons Must Not Be Lost

The Department of Health and Social Care is in talks with the local authorities who were piloting the now delayed social care reform as the Local Government Association warned that learning must not be lost from the work councils had already done.

“Councils, along with the rest of the social care sector, have undertaken valuable work in recent months to prepare for the reforms going live and this learning should not be lost simply because the reforms are delayed,” said David Fothergill, chairman of the LGA’s community wellbeing board.

“The government needs to continue to fund and support councils on this wider learning as it has the potential to improve efficiency, productivity and innovation. We are keen to avoid a delay to charging reform meaning a cessation of the important work councils have begun in using technology to help bring about productivity and efficiency benefits.”
